Stores are the new DCs?!

Omni-Channel Forum: Tuesday, February 19th, 3:20 pm – 3:40 pm

Customer’s expectations to shop everywhere at any time has put fashion retailers under a lot of pressure. The quick answer for that was to introduce new systems – since then a huge range of different order management systems was established.  However, what is often missing is a holistic approach in which the role and task of the individual store is reconsidered. In order to be able to offer scalable services such as Click & Collect and Ship-from-Store, you need, in addition to exact inventory data, one thing above all: Logistic processes in the stores, which run like a clockwork. A point where stores can learn a lot from DCs to benefit from increased product availability and proximity to the consumer.

Blockcain vs. AI? And pigs might fly!

EuroCIS Forum: Wednesday, February 20th, 4:00 pm – 4:20 pm

It has almost become a recurring game with rising entertainment value: what will be the big topic of the industry this year? After Business Intelligence, Cloud, Analytics, Blockchain and AI – what’s next? No question: new technologies are the engine of progress, enabling new services and applications. But what matters most is to apply these new technologies to specific problems and issues. The more complex the technologies and the more abstract the keywords, the harder it is to relate to the “Daily Business” – the main reason why many things do not exceed the conceptual phase. Therefore: A few very solid examples about the use of AI in the store to solve real problems. Who’s happy in the end? The consumer.

When – February 19-21st, 2019

Where – Düsseldorf, Germany

Booth – #C04, Hall 9

Every year industry experts, innovative trends and insights from leading vendors descend on the Javits Centre in New York City to create the world’s greatest retail trade fair. While innovative concepts were discussed during previous years, 2019 is the time for real solutions to be implemented.

Detego was positioned front and centre as part of the SAP partner village in booth #3426. For Detego, it was all about communicating our expertise and best practice when it comes to the implementation of RFID-based inventory management and consumer engagement solutions. Detego’s software is customer driven and has been developed through collaboration and understanding of how fashion retailers’ operations work. This approach was critical in advising retailers on their inventory management needs. 

Tangible customer experience improvements

If the customer is to come back to the store, the store must change fundamentally. A store needs to inspire: in the design and presentation of the product assortment, with digitally supported store personnel empowered to provide knowledgeable sales advice and service, as well as delivering on the brand promise. With the help of Artificial Intelligence (AI), consumers are able to really experience the entire assortment. Cameras can capture the gender of the customer in order to display specific articles on large screens – digital signage becomes a central element of the staging of a brand. The multi-sensory approach to address consumers using sound elements or visualised fittings on e.g. eyewear or garments, offers a quick product comparison but also supports the purchasing decision. Pictures taken directly in the store can be shared with friends via social media, thereby making it a memorable shopping experience.

Operational Excellence in the store: Single-Stock View

Operational Excellence refers to stores with high levels of article availability – comparable to mini-distribution centres. In the omni-channel business, retailers need a Single view of Stock across all of their stores, franchises as well as concession partners as consumers are not interested in channels, they await a frictionless shopping experience.

It is clear that exact inventories are a necessary basis for efficient omni-channel retailing and therefore, satisfied customers; the same applies to RFID technology for accurate stock takes and article management. Retailers demand solutions that can be implemented quickly for a reasonable budget. Ideally with the option to test it in a pilot store and the possibility to easily roll out over the entire store network and to expand across the entire supply chain.

The Detego booth had retailers getting a hands-on demonstration of the Detego InStore Lean Edition, a mobile app-based solution which provides a quick start into RFID-based inventory management of the store. The mantra of ‘keep it simple’ was often being communicated by vendors and retailers alike.

Artificial Intelligence comes in many forms

“Retail will adopt AI technology the fastest in the next three years,” Deborah Weinswig, CEO and founder of U.S. retail and tech consultancy Coresight Research. With numerous AI solutions on display, retailers will have to think long and hard about how they want to utilise AI for their business.

Some of the use cases we could see was in data-driven AI solutions to make accurate demand prediction, new product development, optimized inventory placement and transportation as well as more advanced technology being used in offline shopping. Detego, a leader in AI for fashion retailers was one of the vendors showcasing the use of AI in our Smart Fitting Room and Chatbot, to bridge the gap between online and offline shopping as well as providing retailers with new data such as ‘fitting room conversion rates’.

Beyond the horizon – New market development for RFID

NRF also previewed a look of what is to come, more specifically in RFID inventory management for retailers. Intelligent label provider, Avery Dennison, provided a first peek into sustainable use of RFID and fresh food management to reduce food wastage across the world’s food retailers. With continued developments in labelling technology and a strong business case, the opportunities within RFID and retail continue to make an impact on the industry.
